There are two books that i just need to vent about. I am really ticked off on how bad the writing is as a whole. One book is JLA. Metzer for was 11 issues did a sub par job on this title. The story arcs were slow and boring, and you just didn't get that feeling about the JLA. This should be the # 1 book out there, but it sure as hell fails in that category. Then McDuffie came on and i really saw potential for great stories and great art, but for the last 2 issues all we got was Crossover issues. I didn't care about issue 16 and I sure as heck didn't care about # 17!

I don't want to pick up a book and keep wondering as to what the heck is going on???!!!

I am pretty sure there's more people on here who have the same feelings towards this book. There's no direction whatsoever! I know i can't blame McDuffie for the writing on # 17 but come on!

When will Geoff Johns come on and save this book?

The other book is Teen Titans. But since this is not the titabs board i won't go into it.

This is a train wreck. I am thinking of just dropping this title.

I sympathise with you. I quit after ish. 16 with the Atom and Flash appearance. It was just an advertisement for another one of those stoopid Countdown mini series. And the heroes were written as being both idiotic and/or insensitive; a cop disappears, they are aware that there is a device that can make people disappear, and they just walk away. I can't see any of those three heroes doing that. So I quit after that issue because as much as I respect McDuffie his writing has been shit. I don't know if it is his fault or instructions from on high that makes him write the way he does, but either way I don't need to drop cash on such a sub-par series.
